The prep for this recipe can easily be done in advance. Cook your bacon (saving some of the drippings), and get your cabbage marinated. It only takes 30 minutes, but man, it’s so delicious I’d love to do it overnight to really suck in the flavor!

When you’re ready to cook, just grill it up for about 10-12 minutes and you’re good to go! Top with blue cheese, green onion and chopped bacon and devour!

So be different this 4th Of July! Offer up some grilled fruits or veggies, even this grilled cabbage; watch it go in minutes. Its different than the usual food you’re used to eating at a bbq, so your guests are going to gravitate towards it.

Plus, it will be the one thing they talk about on the way home, other than you’re awesome fireworks. Me on the other hand, I have a hand full of pop-its. So I think I’ll be trying to impress with the food other than my safe “fireworks”…

    Omg, so many flavors. This looks delicious!! Love the idea of bleu cheese in there. Perfect July 4th side dish idea, thanks for sharing!

  • This looks amazing, and normally I am weird about cabbage. But I totally want to devour these right off my screen. If only…

    • Haha, cabbage is the best! I hated it as a kid, but I love it now. Thanks Karly!

  • Igor

    Wow, that’s creative! I also love your pictures. So many colors. Great work!

    I’ve meant to do some cauliflower steaks with our harvest last year and never got round to it, these sound superb with the blue cheese and bacon… Could you help me out with the Applewood Marinade? I live in central Europe so there is no way I will find the product so a couple of hints on the flavour profile and texture would go a long way. Thank you.

    I have never tried cabbage steaks before, but l am a huge fan of grilled dishes, especially when it comes about big flavours. l love the crunch you get from the cabbage and the saltiness of bacon. That blue cheese gives a nice kick to the dish. Superb!

    • Thanks Daniela! It’s a great dish, I was amazed with everyones responses when I made it for them!

  • cherie

    have a question- the recipe says to mix the package with the oil, syrup, etc but that was barely enough to smear on a couple of slabs of the cabbage…was I suppose to follow directions of mix, then mix in the oil, syrup, etc in the recipe?

    • Hey Cheri! the measurements are right, it doesn’t make a whole lot of marinade – just enough to coat the cabbage. If you want it slathered in it, you can double down on the marinade servings. I did that once and it really packed in the flavor!
